In most of the US, the standard residential ISP service gives you
- some amount of bandwidth, usually asynchronous
- dynamic IP address (with static available for a higher price)
- some service quality and repair speed guarantees
- many ISPs, especially cable modem, have annoying policies that say
you can't run a server at home.  But many don't.
- some ISPs are starting to get the idea tha

Most of the ISPs that provide that kind of service offer business
service using the residential technology
- higher price
- better service quality and repair speed guarantees
- static IP addresses, and you can run a server

Note that this isn't my regular email account - It's still experimental so far.
And Google probably logs and indexes everything you send it.
